91.1FM The Globe Launches New Look, Website
Jason Samuel, General Manager
Welcome to 91.1 FM The Globe's new website! We're proud to present our new brand and site to you! The launch of our new website and branding coincides with our annual membership drive which runs through June 18th.
About our new brand
In the upcoming weeks you'll see more interactive features on the site while we continue to provide you with great music programming and unique content. Our new branding and website presents a practical and timeless style intended to reflect the music you hear each day on The Globe.
In an effort to honor our mantra as a “Culturally Progressive” radio station we chose to incorporate classic symbols like our new microphone icon, simple shapes, and block lettering as a way to recognize the vintage history of radio and the musical roots of our artists.
What the new site has to offer
We encourage you to browse the site. Aside from our new look, the biggest change that you'll see is the new inline music player. The player is designed to be functional on all devices such as desktops, laptops, netbooks, and tablets. In the coming weeks we will be able to fully support smart phones. The player comes outfitted with user accounts and the ability to 'heart' (aka - bookmark) your favorite songs. When you heart a song, not only does it tell us what you like, it also saves the song in your account so that you'll never forget it! You can even share your list with friends.
Our new Contact page has all the information you need to get in touch with us. It even has a form to simplify emailing us. The About page gives you background information on who we are and what we do. It includes our mission, as well as a list of all of the past student and faculty managers.
The Support page explains the various ways that you can get involved with the station. Becoming a member is the most popular, so we took the time to streamline the membership process. You can also volunteer or underwrite The Globe, so if you're interested, just head on over to the contact page and hit us up.
And finally, a word on our Member Donation page - we re-organized the form, making it more user friendly. If you're interested in becoming a member and making a contribution you should know that this page is hosted on Goshen College's secure server and protected by an SSL certificate. Your information is safe with us!
What you should expect to see shortly
There's a lot that we have planned for the website. Keep checking back as we begin integration with Facebook and Twitter for the music player. We also have plans for a new station blog. This is our first post, which is why you don't see the blog in the navigation anywhere. Within a couple of weeks we'll have fresh posts appearing on a regular basis to keep you informed on new music, industry buzz, and upcoming events at The Globe. We will also debut a new program guide, bio pages, and an event calendar, too.
Most importantly, thank you!
We value your listenership and support. It's a pleasure to serve you. We put a lot of time and effort into providing you with culturally progressive music and unique content. If you like what you hear on The Globe please show your support by becoming a member or renewing you commitment again this year. Simply go to our Support page to learn more about how you can help us reach our $20,000 goal.
By "hearting" a song, you can tell The Globe what you love! And, it bookmarks the song for later so you never forget your favorite songs! There's even rumor of a "Buy This Song" feature coming soon...
